Hop Along...Blog Hop! Share Your Favorite First Day Activites

Beginning of the year Activities for my Classroom! 

Introductions: This is something that often gets overlooked. Although the students know my name, they do not know me. I am going to  let them know some things about me. Where I grew up, where I went to school  and how long I have been teaching.  The students will see me as a real person if I share something about myself. I plan to include a scrapbook of some of my favorite school pictures from 5th grade and share some of my old school work assignments. This often opens up a good conversation about how students grow and goals we might have for ourselves this year! After all, I still do not write as I did as a 3rd, 4th or 5th they will all see!
Please Link up to the post with your own post telling everyone YOUR favorite first day activities! Which activities are your most successful "ice breakers"? Do you have any great "getting to know you activities that you want to share?
So join the Blog Hop...Hop Along!
